Much Ado About Necklaces

With the #neckmess trend raging, intentional tangles reign.

THE RULES OF necklace layering have been rewritten in the past few years, and the result is gloriously maximal: collectors are curating luscious necklace arrays in a celebration of styling that is its own eye-catching art form. The key is marketing individual pieces that can shine solo when the trend passes or if your shopper is feeling low-key, but that also lend themselves to lovely layering.

Perfect Pendants

Pendant necklaces are perfection when it comes to versatility: you can limit length by changing chains or switch up style by combining charms. Neckmess newbies might be shy about having too many bobbling bits bouncing around together on their chains, but the informality of this insouciance is all that is au courant.

Décolletage Décor

While pendant necklaces are weighted straight down, these more balanced beauties are adept at the art of laying lightly along the line of a collarbone, seamlessly and sinuously integrating themselves into the body’s curves. Often more complex in texture than a simple pendant necklace, these designs are stunning solo or as the anchor to a couture-worthy multi-necklace curation.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
